the last presidential -- the first presidential debate. obama now at 45%, romney at 49%. that's a significant shift from before the debate when the president was ahead by eight points, 51% to 43%. but let's dig a little bit deeper right now. this question, all likely voters who were asked answered, obama doesn't know how to turn the economy around, do you agree or disagree? 54% said they agree with that. 44% they say disagree. that sounds like trouble for the president's reelection campaign. >> that does. that number -- first of all, the top-line numbers are surprising because i believe pew has been a pr pre-pro obama poll. pew's been pretty good for obama. the top-line numbers are really surprising. have to see if other polls show the same thing. but as you point out, that's the key number, the economy. how does obama get out of this box of voters being not happy with the economy? but up until now, willing to perhaps give him another chance. i'm surprised. i'm surprised the debate turned things around, if they indeed have, that quickly. obama has two more debates to turn thin

's speech in a june 2007, then presidential candidate obama, veering off script and making statements that some say are racially charged. we are showing you the parts of the speech that you have never seen before. >> down in new orleans... where they still have not rebuilt, 20 months later... there is a law -- federal law when you get reconstruction money from the federal government called the stafford act. and basically, it says, when you get federal money, have you to give a 10% match. the local government's got to come up with 10%. every $10 the federal government comes up with, local government's got to give a dollar. now, here's the thing, when 9/11 happened in new york city... they waived the stafford act, said this is too serious a problem, we can't expect new york city to rebuild on its own -- forget that dollar you have to put in. we will -- here's $10. that was the right thing to do. whether hurricane andrew struck in florida, people said, look at this devastation! we don't expect to you come up with your own money, here! here's the money to rebuild. we won't wait for to you

on the next presidential debate where a lot of president obama supporters will say you better come out swinging, you better do what ronald reagan did after a lackluster opening debate with mondale. i don't know whether he does it with aject -- a joke or a quick zinger at ronald reagan did but is it incumbent upon the president to get the forts back and get back in the game? >>guest: you would think so. how could we avoid the critique of the president's performance in that debate? as i said from left to right it has been very, very critical. it is hard to think of a debate except maybe the 1980 debate between reagan and carter where the gap between the incumbent and the challenger was so great, if this doesn't get the obama white house attention nothing will. you are right, they will come up with some lines or a joke or something but it is not as though romney is just going to sit back and do nothing between now and the next debate. my guess is based on his past practice, he already is working with portman on new answers. >>neil: i like what you said "right now" it is changing people's

they didn't prepare him. the president has to look presidential. i don't think president obama is going to call mitt romney a liar on the next debate. that's not presidential. he will be more aggressive. i don't think mitt romney is necessarily a liar, he just manages to convince himself that any position is fine at the time. ted kennedy said it best when romney debated ted kennedy, i'm the pro choice candidate, my opponent is the multiple choice candidate. mitt romney says whatever he has to say. there's no core belief there. that is going to be a problem for him in the general election. i think people are into that. i think they get that politicians say anything and obama doesn't do that. he pretty much tells it like it is. did he do a good job in the debate? no. i think he could have been more aggressive. >> i want to ask you about vice president biden yesterday, on the stump some people are calling it a gaffe, that they want to raise taxes by $1 trillion. guess what yes, we do. is that the right kind of message? >> wait a minute. no. excuse me. the rest of that y

presidential. but foreign policy as well. that's where the obama administration's on the defensive about libya. but i think the entire obama team and the vice president are going to get a lot feistier here. i mean, the president made a decision not to get in romney's face a little bit more, stop him, disagree with him. he didn't bring up the 47%. he had a whole, you know, area to discuss the role of government, and he didn't talk about a philosophical divide. i think they are now going to go become a lot more aggressive because they see an aggressive challenger and it's not enough to d rope-a-dope and sit back and try to sit on a lead. so i think there's going to be a different thought process that goes on. >> zpsavannah, were you surpris we didn't hear the number 47? >> i was. as a matter of fact, an obama adviser told me earl yes today we're not going to play it safe, don't believe those stories we're playing not to lose. but i think that's what we saw the president doing. the other thing he needs to do is really it's the unfinished business of this campaign, is tell the american people what
